of days ago, president obama said egypt was not exactly the united states' ally, but it wasn't its enemy either. did those words have anything to do with this? >> reporter: i think there is a certain amount of alarm among the leadership of the muslim brotherhood. those i've spoken with did seem to get the message, that the united states was unhappy with the response or the reaction of mohammed morsi, the egyptian president, to the breaching of the american embassy. they felt that maybe it's time to start sending out a more reassuring messages to the united states. but what's significant is that on the one hand the message is come i coming out in english to a nonarabic audience, seemed to be pointing in the direction of reconciliation. i was at a demonstration this morning at a mosque not in the tahrir square area where it was organized by the muslim brotherhood. and the chants were not reassuring. one of the chants was "obama there are a million osamas." referring, of course, to osama bin laden, be chanting that united states is the enemy of god. it appears that the muslim brotherhood is
the united states, i am sure libya receives money. it was even greater because the american ambassador -- i am supportive of the arab spring. the times and elsewhere, i said to myself, they are not great people. but they are people that surely will turn out nice to us. it doesn't make any sense. >> the events of the last week, the embassy attacks, it will result in a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i think there is a little more to follow. the shift in special elections indicated deep distrust of this administration. that was clear. what the administration said, you heard what the state said. the message was sent loud and clear. for a while, i think it was always together. we have heard the state department say that they have taken every reasonable step. we have heard the quote from the ambassador suggesting he was comfortable and these people love me. it's not true. he issued a statement saying he is very concerned about his own safety. again, we have an information gap. that is coming home to roost. this will build. >> today's new york times, the interview with th
last october at the values voter summit. it has been crisscrossing the united states registering voters of sporting concerted candidates are running for office, and shining the light on this administration and its failed policies. please take a few minutes to step on board between new and to, today and tomorrow. it's parked recognize the exhibit hall. just follow the signs. you can't miss it. speaking of the exhibit hall we are delighted to have many profamily conservative organizations from all over the country or exhibiting with us. in fact, the second year in a row with so many we had to overflow in the air on the other side of the exhibit hall and was called birdcage walk. we plan to visit these wonderful exhibitors and to show them your appreciation for all the work they do. we are pleased to have our good friend of the media research center again as or sponsor of new media wrote located in the ballroom and, of course, you'll be hearing from a president roosevelt later in the program. almost finished. hang in there. i'm trying to make these announcements as dynamic as possible. [la
carefully. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally of the united states? >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. they were democratically elected. i think that we will have to see how they respond to this incident, how they respond to, for example, maintaining the peace treaty with israel. >> i want to bring in nick kristof and look at the cover this week. the agents of outrage. we'll talk about that, as well. couldn't be happier to have the two of you and your expertise in this area. i want to start with what happened in libya and give us your perspective. these assailants were heavily armed. it they seemed to be organized. does it seem to you perhaps to have been timed for 9/11, was it an attack of opportunity? >> i really don't know. but it is unusual in that libya is really the most pro american country in the region. the ambassador was be loved in libya. he had helped save benghazi, the city in which he was murdered. and libya as responded pretty appropriately.
and is working with the united states to maintain order and protect embassy facilities and the people inside. >>> meanwhile, the u.s. has dispatched two war ships, armed with cruise missiles, closer to the libyan coast. the defense department says this is just a precautionary step. but 50 u.s. marines have also been dispatched to help guard the embassy in tripoli but there's still more questions than answers on what happened in benghazi and who was behind the attack that left four americans dead, including 52-year-old ambassador chris stevens, widely regarded as one of the most popular and successful american envoys in the region. and of course, sean smith, a father of two and foreign service information management officer. last night campaigning in nevada, the president warned there will be consequences for the perpetrators of the attack. >> as for the ones we lost last night, i want to assure you, we will bring their killers to justice. no act of terror will dim the light of the values that we proudly shine on the rest of the world and no act of violence will shake the resolve of the unite
before them, and that's something i think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? >> i think that when he says that implicitly is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. that wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the people, and
the mourners as the bodies of the u.s. ambassador and others killed in libya return to the united states. and mitt romney ramps up his criticism of the president again as the latest polls show him falling behind in several crucial states. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> but we begin with these live pictures. look at this. this is tahrir square in cairo. these are live pictures coming in not far from the united states embassy. once again, the protests escalating even as we speak. earlier in the day it had been relatively -- keyword, relatively, quiet. now seems to be escalating for some reason. our own ben wedeman is on the ground for us. we're going to be going to him shortly. at the same time as these scenes are unfolding, there also have been frightening scenes of violence and hatred directed at the united states and others around the region. it's spreading. and u.s. officials are very worried. sources tell me they're especially concerned about today's penetration of the united states embassy in tunisia and the reports that the american school was actually burned.
against the united states without some consequencesment now that authority has been removed. the imams and other speakers at friday prayers are free to say almost whatever they want. and that makes the situation far more dangerous. >> protests and deaths in the middle east. and political implications in america when we continue. >> funding for charlie rose was provided by the following: . >> rose: additional funding provided by these funders captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. in this presidential election of 2012 foreign policy was not considered to be an important factor. that's all changed now because on monday night when american diplomatic interests came under attack in egypt and libya, tragically ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in benghazi, governor romney has attempted to make some political attacks out of the situation. and here is what he said. >> i think it's a-- a -- -- a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> rose: president obama responded in kind in
of pressure when it comes to this. not only from the united states, but also from its own people. now, whether these people that are detained are really involved in the attack or have links to this extremist group is something that we'll have to see and see what kind of reaction we see from the extremists too. >> do we have any idea if they're related or affirmative actionated with al qaeda? there's a lot of talk about that yesterday, the possibility that that was the organization. >> not much has been revealed by the government by this group, but what we do know, suzanne, is this is not an isolated incident. over the past few months we have seen an uptick in similar attacks targeting western interests. the u.s. consulate itself was targeted in an attack back in june when a bomb detonated outside the embassy. those attacks taken place in benghazi was targeted by a extremist group, it was called the brigades. this is a true al qaeda group. we also do know that there are groups with links direct links to al qaeda that operate in the eastern part of the country. >> what is the security situation
. and that ideology is one of jihad against the united states. they believe that they are engaged on a war which is a war against islam. and the duty of every muslim when islam is under attack to rise up and defend it. so if you can make an argument to the people as they effectively can with this film that islam is under attack it's very easy to capture that popular anger and resentment and to hide behind that, to further an agenda that is essentially al qaeda's agenda that is rarely what it comes back to. it doesn't mat ferr this was ordered by al qaeda or not it may have been investigators are looking at that. but the fact is that the ideology and intent is the same. it's been the same ever since osama bin laden made his first fat what against the united states, a global ideology and intent on the destruction of the united states and the west. >> that is absolutely true. and what adds a sort of extra dimension to the current state of affairs is that now there are people in this country who have questionable agendas of their own. who are giving provocation just as there are people willing to ta
in the foreign service, he won friends to the united states in far-flung places. he made those people's hopes his own. during the revolution in libya, he risked his life to help protect the libyan people from a tyrant. he gave his life helping them build a better country. people loved to work with him. as he rose through the ranks, they loved to work forehand. he was known not only for his courage, but for his smile. goofy, but contagious. for his sense of fun and that california cool. in the days since the attack, so many libyans, including the ambassador, who is with us today, have expressed their sorrow and solidarity. one young woman, her head covered and her eyes haunted with sadness, held up a handwritten sign that said "thugs and killers do not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a difficult week for the state department's and for
as the united states goes. in arabic, a much harsher tone and in some respects, not all together condemning the current protests outside the u.s. embassy here. >> we'll continue the conversation. we'll come back to you. if you need for any security reason to step inside away -- you are outside right now, we will certainly understand that. fran, we've identified or know the identify of the fourth victim, tyrone woods. i know you don't know him personally, we've all spent time in hotspots overseas. we know men like him that play critical roles in these dangerous countries without any recognition. >> that's right. when you look at glen dougherty and tyrone woods, it allows the united states to be in dangerous places we need to be in order to protect long term the american people and american interests. our diplomats wouldn't be in those parts of the world without woods and dougherty. woods' sister made a statement, and she regards him as an american hero. if more people understood the mission and what they are doing, as well as how woods and dougherty behaved in responsibility to the attack on
/11 in the united states -- was that your testimony? >> is a daunting statistics. i got this information of a steve emerson's investigative product website, where he has all the court records of every single muslim are extremists arrested in the country since 9/11. that is my sources can pump. -- that is where my sources came from. >> many people in the community did not understand to sikhs -- who they were intel the tragedy occurred. how does the sikh fit into milwaukee before the tragedy, and how would you describe the outpouring corresponds that occurred? >> sikhs are a different religion, a different race -- they will come up to you and asking for you are. people do not ask towho sikhs are. if a person asks me, who am i? what is that on your head? i would love to tell them what it is. people do not do that. they should start doing that. to get the fact that it is right. it is a turban. >> ok. how have you been moving forward since the tragedy with respect to your place of worship and your ability to come and worship without fear? >> on my what? >> the level of fear that occurred when the traged
they hear that the president of the united states is no longer necessarily categorically calling egypt an ally? >> reporter: well, you know, quite honestly there's been a lot of confusion about what the u.s. role is right now and how the u.s. feels about egypt. before our revolution began, there was and continued to be a lot of anti-u.s. sentiment because of this support by various u.s. administrations for dictators in this region. but hearing the statement today, i think people are thinking, all right, well, whose side are you on because we're trying to get this revolution working and it has definitely confused a lot of people. >> all right, thank you so much for your time. i want to go directly to golden, colorado, where the president is speaking about the four who were killed in libya. >> serve in difficult and dangerous places all around the world, to advance the interests and the values that we hold dear as americans. and a lot of times their work goes unheralded, it doesn't get a lot of attention. but it is vitally important. we enjoy our security and our liberty because of the s
not be photographed when those coffins got back to the united states. that change in policy under george w. bush was a source of anger and controversy. it is why coffins were sometimes used in anti-iraq war protests to visually represent those real caskets of americans killed in the war that the bush administration would not allow the country to see. the bush administration banned the media from showing those dignified transfer ceremonies as the invasion of iraq started in 2003. and they kept the policy in place throughout george w. bush's time in office. as the country waged two of the longest wars in our history. it was not until the new president replaced george w. bush that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the following thursday, the media was allowed to cover that solemn return ceremony for the first time in a long time. and maybe it is because we did go so long as a country without seeing images like this that we are a little roc
and grant their families peace and solace, and may god continue to bless the united states of america. >> greater love hath no man than this. that a man lay down his life for his friends. the flag they served under now carries them home. may god bless the memory of these men who laid down their lives for us all. may god watch over your families and all who loved them. and may god bless these united states of america. >> at this incredibly somber ceremony at andrews air force base today, remarks from both secretary of state hillary clinton and president obama at a time when both mr. obama and mrs. clinton as head of the state department, when they have to do things like addressing the nation while also managing in a hands-on way what is an ongoing and significant crisis for the country. protests at u.s. embassies grew and spread today. in egypt, in iraq, in india, in bangladesh, in turkey, in pakistan, in kuwait, in syria, where you might think they'd have other things on their minds. afghanistan, malaysia, nigeria, in lebanon where a kentucky fried chicken restaurant was torched. in t
. >> i believe mitt romney wants to be president of all of the united states. this week we learned mitt romney wants to be president of half of the united states. if mitt romney were president, he weent waste time worrying about the 47% of americans who he believes are victims, who romney believes are unwilling to take personal responsibility and those are his words, madam president, not mine. he'll only worry about how the other half lives, i guess. that's what mitt romney told a group of wealthy donor at a closed door fundraiser in florida a month or so ago. but it turns out it wasn't closed. someone videotaped every word he said to his wealthy donors. but this is among other things what he said and this is a quote. "there are 47% who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it." mitt romney said his job as president would not be to, "worry about those people." but half of americans are those people. he went on to sa
respect our common humanity. i have made it clear that the united states had nothing to do with this video. it is an insult to muslims, and everyone. we are the home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism." "uses addressed to regain the initiative on foreign policy." if you look at the front page of "the washington times" this , the right "the expected campaign advantage on foreign policy suddenly in doubt, the president portrayed the deaths of the americans in libya has inflamed tensions over an anti- islamic movie rather than tensions based on american policy in the middle east." from "the washington times," the headline says "romney, exchange for reform."

of the united states? >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. they were democratically elected. i think that we will have to see how they respond to this incident. >> not an ally and not an enemy. two u.s. warships are moving in to coast along the coast of libya as the hunt continues for killers of four americans. president obama vowing justice and continuing search for the murderers and their motive. >> as for the ones we lost last night, i want to assure you we will bring their killers to justice. >> meanwhile mitt romney will hold a campaign event in virginia within the hour still causing a stir after doubling down on his criticism of president obama as an poll guest in chief. politicians here and home and oversay sea oversay sees debating the judgment. >> these are moments that test the characters of the candidates. >> there is a lack of leadership there and that's what i would be hoping about and i hope mitt romney will be looking at the big picture. >> i think it was a big mistake.
. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed off. different lines can be drawn in the i iranian nuclear program. but to be credible, a line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program -- on their efforts to enrich uranium. let me explain why. any bomb consists of an explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is fuse.der in and a you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder. the gunpowder is enriched uranium in regards to iran's nuclear program. the fuse is a detonator. for iran, amassing enough uranium is far more difficult than producing a nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of center fuses spinning in tandem in big industrial plants. those are green plants are visible. they are still vulnerable. in contrast, iran could produce a record detonator, the fuse, in a lot less time. maybe under a year. maybe only a few months. the detonator can be made in a small workshop the size of the classroom. it might be difficult to find and target that workshop
. there is a dichotomy of messages. in english, they seem to be farrell soft and conciliatory as far as the united states. in arabic, a much harsher tone and in some respects, not all together condemning the current protests outside the u.s. embassy here. >> ben, we are going to continue the conversation. we are going to come back to you. if you need for any security reason to step inside, we will certainly understand that. fran, we now know the identity of the fourth victim, tyrone woods, a former navy s.e.a.l. i know you didn't know him personally. we have all spent a lot of time in hotspots jeeoverseas. >> that's right, anderson. when you look at glen doherty and tyrone woods, the function they perform really allows the united states to be in dangerous places where we need to be in order to protect long-term the american people and american interests. our diplomates wouldn't be there in those parts of the world without those kind of men. his sister said sh regards him as an american hero. if more people understood the mission and what they are doing in these dangerous places as well as how woods and d
shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> earlier today secretary of state hillary clinton stepped up her criticism of the anti-muslim film that first prompted the protests. >> to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensib reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. >> joining me now live from cairo, nbc's similar maceda. give us the best description of how things are right now. >> reporter: well, ironically benghazi remained calm today. if you look at it, perhaps the libyan government's quick crackdown there on those alleged perpetrators. four individuals were arrested today. there's a manhunt going on that might have had a tamping-down effort. even there in benghazi, the u.s. government is taking no chances. we understand that all u.s. personnel has now been or have been evacuated to tripoli and only emergency staff are kept at the embassy here. here in cairo it's another 24 hours of protests against that made in usa anti-islam film. overnight last night some dramatic scenes near the u.s
people. because the senate bill was inclusive and every woman member , republican, of the united states senate voted for it. everyone. that was the difference between the two bills. those who were included and a more specific group that are now included, which we think they ought to be, but we also think there aren't people include who had need to be. with all due respect i think my characterization was absolutely accurate. but it's interesting, mr. speaker, that we still haven't eabed the question -- answered the question. we tend to want to talk about other things. 98% of americans should not get a tax increase on january 1 that are making less than $250,000 individually as a family. i think we agree on that. mr. speaker, now i haven't heard that we don't agree on that but we agree on that which means there are 2% on which we do not agree. and that bill has not been brought to the floor that passed the united states senate dealing with that 98%. or 97% of small business. now, mr. speaker, it seems to me if we have agreement on 98% and the president of the united states will sign that
to be appalled by these kinds of scenes, but at the end of the day, the united states didn't do this and the united states is not responsible for it, and those who respond violently have a responsibility to the governments where there is violence, they have a responsibility to deal with it, and demonstrate they are in fact prepare prepared to live up to the obligations they have. >> this is front and center for the campaign happening here between president obama and mitt romney and as we understand it, mitt romney and paul ryan are going to be receiving intelligence briefings and their advisers now laying out what a romney presidency would look like, and ambassador, they are saying that he would be tougher on iran and setting a red line and he would tell egypt if they want aid they have to protect american interests and provide more aid to syrian opposition and short of arming them directly like the president. what do you make of that strategy? his foreign policy analysis of what is going on present day? >> well, first of all i would divide it into two different issues. issue on
